A “chastened” U.S. Supreme Court won’t make the mistake of granting marriage equality, former presidential candidate Rick Santorum predicted in an interview today.

“I think you’ll see, hopefully, a chastened Supreme Court is not going to make the same mistake in the (current) cases as they did in Roe v. Wade,” Santorum told The Des Moines Register in a telephone interview. “I’m hopeful the Supreme Court learned its lesson about trying to predict where the American public is going on issues and trying to find rights in the Constitution that sit with the fancy of the day.”

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments on two major marriage equality cases last month, and rulings are expected by June.
